Going for 10K again to support Benjamin - please donate!
Please support me as I participate in the Race to End Duchenne at the 2020 Disney 10K race.
I am racing for my nephew, Benjamin, who works so hard every day just to keep his muscles. Your support will help raise money for research to give hope that someday Benjamin will be able to strengthen his muscles and run his own races. Your support through a donation will help fund ongoing, groundbreaking research to help kids like Benjamin, diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Those with Duchenne are truly in a race against time as their muscles deteriorate further each day. ANY support you can give will help in finding a way to put an end to this devastating, fatal muscle disorder for which there is currently no cure.
"I run because I can. When I get tired, I remember those who can't race, what they would give to have this simple gift I take for granted, and I race harder for them. I know they would do the same for me."
All funds raised will benefit Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy (http://join.parentprojectmd.org) and go directly toward researching a cure. Your contribution is 100% tax deductible.
If you prefer, you may also mail a check, made payable to Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, to:
Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy
401 Hackensack Avenue, 9th Floor
Hackensack, NJ 07601
(Please note that the check is in honor of Heather DePalma/WDW Marathon)
It is our families wish that we are able to find a cure to end Duchenne. With your help, we can raise money to fund research to DESTROY Duchenne, hopefully within Benjamin's lifetime.
Thank you for your support!
